1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red or green sugar crystals (for cake decorating)


In a small zipper food storage bag or empty shaker container, mix ingredients.

Add this poem:

"Be sure to take this magic food and sprinkle on the lawn,

On Christmas, Santa's reindeer travel miles before the dawn.

The smell of oats and glitter path will guide them on their way

And you'll wake up to Santa's gifts next morn on Christmas Day!"

cook's notes

while many recipes for Magic Reindeer Food call for craft glitter, this ingredient can harm birds or wildlife if eaten. Substitute colored sugar crystals and be kind to animals!

This is a fun one for the kids! And I love that it's safe for any wildlife that might eat it (including any reindeer). If you live in a warmer climate you might attract some ants with it so don't let the kids sprinkle it too close to the house!
